About the Flag

Hayle (Cornish: Heyl) is a small town, civil parish and cargo port in the Penwith district of Cornwall, UK. The parish was created in 1888 from part of the now defunct Phillack parish, with which it was later combined in 1935, and incorporated part of St Erth in 1937. The modern parish shares boundaries with St Ives to the west, St Erth to the south, Gwinear and Gwithian in the east, and is bounded to the north by the Celtic Sea. The town, whose name derives from the Cornish heyl, meaning estuary, is situated at the southern end of St Ives bay on the estuary of the Hayle River, approximately 6 miles south-east of the town of St Ives by road. It has 8,317 residents." - from Wikipedia

The town council adopted a flag somewhere in 2008, I couldn't locate the exact date. It can be seen flying on a photo at http://www.hayletowncouncil.net/press.htm.
